Hardball, Chris Matthews
Awful and unacceptable. Chris Matthews asks his guests a question and then he talks over them, he gives his opinion after saying he will keep his opinions to himself, he does not allow people to finish a sentence without interrupting and interjecting, he asks (mis)leading questions. And the top point of unacceptable came last week in discussing Bernie Sanders. Let me state, I am not a Sanders supporter but suggesting that Bernie Sanders’ social-democratic platform would result in people being shot in Central Park was a show of manipulation. Denmark, Sweden but also Germany, France, The Netherlands, Belgium - in fact all of Western Europe have social democratic government's with high levels of personal freedom, press freedom, affordable healthcare for everyone. I know this as an ex-pat living in the Netherlands for the last 45 years. Chris can hope that Bernie is not the Democratic Party’s candidate but the place for him to put money where his mouth is is in the voting booth.
